Use Cases

DMA supports broad range of scenarios, enabling DApps in decentralized digital marketing and commerce domain.


This use case includes performances, live shows, sporting events, ticket management for various gatherings. DMA can help the event ticketing platform to tokenize the tickets, making it easy for selling in the online ticketing platform. The e-ticket can also be easily sent, transferred, sold/bought among people in secondary market. The original ticket issuer can put restrictions on the e-ticket, such as the frequency, liquidity, price range of the ticket. This kind of asset should follow non-fungible Token Standard.

Digital copyright-ed content

The digital content, such as e-book, music, pictures, documents, can be managed by DMA framework’s digital asset controller. The controller features several smart contracts defining the rights and duties as well as profit distribution mechanisms.

Digital Advertisement Service

Customers with dynamical personal portrait data like to share with the right ad agent or direct channel who offers the right price for usage. DMA data management and utilization services make the match-making job easier. It helps maximizing the ad efficiency and accuracy, and automatically distribute expense, commission and profit, with minimum intermediary agent involvement.

Pilot dApp

DMA 1.0 focuses on digital asset management. We chose the ticketing industry and built ‘Uptick’ as the first pilot dApp powered by DMA. Uptick is a decentralised marketplace for buying and selling tickets. We welcome business owners to join Uptick and run their own business on the platform. People can also develop their own ticketing dApp based on Uptick.
Eventually we aim to be the enabling layer for local businesses to create their own ticket dApps across all regions. Uptick is just a vertical domain that DMA covers. We hope that people can get inspiration from Uptick and come up with even more innovative dApp projects.

Early Access Program

As the DMA 1.0 Beta is released, we decided to launch the ‘Early Access Program’ (EAP). It aligns with the main goal of Q1 2019: Release the stable version of DMA 1.0 and launch several commercial dApps with partners. We invite people to join the (EAP) program by clicking this link. We will pick 3-5 projects and provide strong technical support. We believe this is the right launching process for DMA 1.0 and the dApp community in order to hit the market with success. The deadline for the (EAP) application is the end of February 2019. Please send email to us with your proposal.
